Experiments were conducted to determine the feasibility of a technique employing scintillators near the device in conjunction with remote photosensitive detectors for measurements of reaction history to be conducted on Mike Shot of Operation Ivy, and to determine the maximum gamma-ray intensity and total dosage at which scintillators could be employed. The principal objectives of these tests were to 1 determine the maximum gamma-ray intensity and total dosage at which scintillators could be employed and 2 determine the feasibility of and obtain field experience in the employment of a scintillator-remote photosensitive detector technique with the optical-path problems involved. This included the test of new types of equipment proposed for use on IVy.
